LOM integration with the system, including BIOS integration and shared port for manageability while providing the flexibility of a modular card. The PowerEdge M620 supports one custom network daughter card (NDC), as part of Select Network Adapters family, to house the complete LOM subsystem. There are two form factors of Select Network Adapters—one for blade servers and one for rack servers.
With M620, the job of deploying, updating, monitoring, and maintaining the Select Network Adapters is fast and easy. System management integration features include the following: Pre-boot: Use the Dell Lifecycle Controller graphical user interface (GUI) to set configuration such as bandwidth allocation or firmware revision level.
Table 15 lists the tools and technologies Dell offers to help you achieve your data center goals by lowering power consumption and increasing energy efficiency.
Thermal control of fan speed optimizes the thermal settings for your environment to reduce fan consumption and lower system power consumption. Idle power enables Dell servers to run as efficiently when idle as when at full workload. With the thermal design and reliability of Dell products, you can have the capability to operate at excursion-based temperatures.
Dell PowerEdge M620 Systems Owner's Manual on Support.Dell.com/Manuals. The acoustical performance of the PowerEdge M620 is reflected in Table 16. The addition of some components can cause an increase in fan speed and acoustical output. Contributors to acoustical output can include: The system thermal profile selected in BIOS (for example, Power optimized DAPC or ...

Dell systems management solutions include a wide variety of tools, products, and services that enable you to leverage an existing systems management framework. As shown in Figure 6, Dell systems management solutions are centered around OpenManage server management, featuring iDRAC with Lifecycle Controller.
OpenManage simplifies the lifecycle of deploying, updating, monitoring, and maintaining your Dell PowerEdge servers. The Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller 7 (iDRAC7) with Lifecycle Controller is the heart of the generation of Dell PowerEdge server embedded management functionality. In addition to enabling agent-free management, iDRAC7 with Lifecycle Controller provides remote access to the system—whether or not there is a functioning operating system running on the server.
Enterprise is available for the PowerEdge M620, and Dell also offers an option of iDRAC7 Express for Blades. A detailed feature comparison for iDRAC7 Enterprise and iDRAC7 Express for Blades is shown in Table 21. iDRAC7 iDRAC7 Feature (function)
